Step 1

The weight of the load is transferred to the ground via the landing pad

Step 2

Compressed air is applied; the air caster’s membrane lifts the load from the ground

Step 3

Air pressure overcomes the load’s weight; a controlled leakage creates an air film and it floats

Cost effective

Very low maintenance, cost 10% of overhead crane, no floor damage.

Time saving

Fast and accurate positioning in 20% of the normal time

Heavy loads

Suitable for very heavy loads and fragile, high-tech equipment


Virtually friction free movement, only exhaust gas is compressed air

“We are still very satisfied with the 200 Ton transformer core transporter that Aerofilm Systems delivered us back in 2010. It needs very little maintenance and makes our production process very reliable!”
